AR01Absent Without Eve2010080320120916

A third series of short stories written by writers new to radio.

Each year we set them within the environs of Brighton - Pier Shorts, Pavilion Pieces and this year the infamous Lanes of Brighton.

More often than not the various journeys lead them beyond the winding Lanes of centuries past and into the Lanes of today, where the antique shops stand beside the more modern examples of what they would once have been, from treasures to cupcakes, and on, across roads, into the place of markets stalls and cafes, buskers and the vibrant life that is the North Laines.

Our first story, Absent Without Eve, is written by Lizzie Enfield.

Read by Jan Ravens.

When their children left home, Eve imagined she and her husband David would be free to spend Saturday mornings wandering the North Laines together, sipping leisurely cappuccinos and browsing second hand bookshops.

But David has other plans for himself and his recently acquired motorbike - plans that don't seem to include Eve.
